No. That is confused. See video. ?
Have you ever wondered that you might be the only thing that exists? Have you ever met someone else who thought that? If you did, how would you reason with them? How would you convince them that other things exist? In this video, we take on the topic of solipsism. ?
I often hear a version of this quip from atheists: “If you accept the Bible’s miracles, why don’t you accept that Muhammad rode a flying horse?” The assumption lying behind the question is this: if you accept one miracle claim, why don’t you accept them all? Sorry to burst your balloon, but that’s like asking “If […]
My latest interview, an epistemological dialogue on the Christian evidentialism YouTube channel: ?
James White recently criticized apologist Mike Licona for saying he was 80% certain that Christianity was true. White went on to suggest that you shouldn’t be an apologist unless you are certain. In this video, I offer a reply. ?

In May, 2020, I participated in a debate on this question: Are there sufficient reasons to believe in God? My debate partner Sam and I divvied up the labor as follows: I argued that there are sufficient ‘reasons’ (i.e. properly basic grounds) to believe in God. Meanwhile, Sam argued that there are sufficient non-basic reasons […]
